NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Rookie Minicamp Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles released quarterback Luis Perez and running back Nico Evans (pictured), according to an official announcement from the team. In corresponding roster news, the team officially confirmed the previously reported Stefen Wisniewski and Cody Kessler signings.

The Eagles originally signed Perez in early April after the AAF folded. There were reports out of rookie minicamp that he really struggled, which isn’t shocking considering his lack of experience. The Eagles clearly felt Kessler was a better option than Perez.

Perez’s departure means Philadelphia is only rostering four quarterbacks now: Carson Wentz, Nate Sudfeld, Clayton Thorson, and Kessler.

Evans was one of the 11 undrafted rookie free agent signings the Eagles announced last week. Philadelphia still has seven running backs on the roster after waiving Evans: Jordan Howard, Miles Sanders, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Boston Scott, and Donnel Pumphrey.

The Eagles’ roster is currently full at the 90-man offseason limit. More cuts could be coming if they plan on signing any of their rookie minicamp tryout players. If not, the current roster is likely the one that’ll be on the field for the start of OTA practices next Tuesday, May 21.
